My name is Derrick Lewis. I am an alumnus of Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA. I have a Specialist in Educational Leadership from Cambridge College in Massachusetts. I've worked as a Marketing Education Coordinator, Entrepreneurship instructor, and now Work-Based Learning Coordinator for the DeKalb County School District for the past 25 years. I have trained and taught high school students to use marketing skills and strategies as a tool to gain a competitive advantage in the field of marketing and entrepreneurship. I have developed marketing curriculum for the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, and developed strategies to improve student engagement, student moral, and increased student enrollment. 

In addition, I have served as a DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America) adviser, and Residency Counselor with the ACAP (Accounting Career Awareness Program) at Emory University for the past several years. I am also a member of WC Thomas Lodge #112 in Atlanta, GA.

Yours Truly,  

Derrick Lewis
